We can’t go out to eat or to any functions, so our weekend date was a long drive in the country to enjoy the sunshine and flowering trees. Our temperatures on Saturday reached eighty degrees with mostly sunny skies.
As you can see, there were no humans in sight. We do not have restrictions on our movements in Tennessee, but I have stayed home and far away from people for many days. All restaurants, bars, and public gatherings are closed for now.
Large bags are back in style this year, so I’m delighted that I kept this one. My BCBG handbag is several years old. I bought a similar bag here. The matte black sunglasses are here. The loafers are from last year, but there are still a few sizes here. The lightweight deep olive ankle pants are here. The Clara Sunwoo top is from last year (sold out now). Other similar tops are here. My spectacular necklace is here.
The elements of my looks are rarely new, so I often share highlighted links to similar current items. The shopping links in my posts may result in a small commission for me at no additional cost to you.
Below is a natural spring of cold clear water seeping out from the ground. Countless such springs feed the numerous creeks that flow down the mountainsides.
Wildflowers are abundant here each spring. Wild fruit trees are splendid at this time of year.
Wild violets always bring a smile.
Many lawns are also colorfully adorned with tulips, daffodils, and old fashioned creeping phlox.
The photo above is a glimpse of ten years ago. It shows the rock-walled gardens in spring at my previous home.
Japanese magnolias and weeping cherry trees are in their full regalia.
The winner of the Beautycounter lotion and lipstick is Karen Kramer. Congratulations Karen!
